The Class of 1965 wishes to show our appre- 
ciation to Mrs, Belle Urie. Your contribu- 
tions, although quiet, were very necessary. 
You have provided us with clean clothes and 
linen weekly, an almost thankless job, and 
this class is proud to point it out. You have 
made our stay a pleasant one, and once again 
we wish to express our appreciation. Thank 
you. 





Dedication 



The Senior Class of 1965 wishes 
to dedicate this Islander to Thompson 
Academy. To the students, Thompson 
is more than just a place to go to 
and learn. We think of Thompson as 
a way of life — a way of life that we 
will always remember.

The Senior Class would like to 
take this opportunity to extend 
our sincere thanks to you, Mr. 
Pearl, for all that you have given 
us during our years at Thompson 
Academy. 

The process of learning is a 
never ending road, with many de- 
tours and stop-signs to confront 
us before we reach our final goal. 
Without your constant help, we 
would not have made it through 
this section of the road. 

We, the senior class, extend to 
you our deepest thanks. 



MR. HOUGHTON D. PEARL 
Headmaster 



There are many problems 
which confront us as we pass 
through high school. There are 
many people whom we, the stu- 
dents, look up to for help and ad- 
vice. The one person who plays 
the greatest part in our daily life 
at school is Mr. Thomas. 

We, the senior class, would like 
to thank you, Mr. Thomas, for 
your help and advice. We feel 
that your help will be of great 
value in our future lives.

Cj/ass yiisiory 



In 1961 the Senior Class of 1965 came to Thompson Academy and elected Kenny Harris as 
president of the Freshman Class. The position of vice president of the Freshman Class was 
filled by Rodney Davis while the post of secretary-treasurer was awarded to Ken Parker, Don- 
ald Maragioglio and Richard Mottau were elected as the freshman student council members. 

As sophomores, the class sponsored the first successful dance on the mainland in recognition 
of Saint Patrick's Day. That year they elected Pedro Ramos as their president, Joe Gorman as 
vice president, Donald Maragioglio as secretary-treasurer, and Robert Duncan and Kenny Par- 
ker as representatives in the Student Council. That year's class was especially proud of winning 
the class games in basketball. 

The year before graduation the juniors energetically applied themselves in making their junior 
year a fine example of T.A. achievement. The first Bohemian Dance was held and turned out to 
be a smashing success, with Mr. Dave Brock portraying the authentic beatnik and chaperoning 
this affair. Two other dances held that year were sold out long in advance. In athletics the juniors 
were by no means lagging as they stole the class softball championship first from the other classes 
and then from the faculty. The members of this class comprised over 70% of the varsity team 
members. As juniors, they elected Donald Maragioglio as president, Robert Duncan as secretary- 
treasurer and Kenny Parker, Pedro Ramos, and Donald Maragioglio as student council repre- 
sentatives. 

As seniors, the graduating class of 1965 made this year one to be long remembered for its ath- 
letic, academic, and leadership qualities and the high grade of excellency attained in all of these. 
After a very fine football season, the seniors held a Football Victoiy Dance which was most suc- 
cessful. Later in the year they had a second Bohemian Dance and a third dance at the end of 
the year, both of which were great successes. Later in the year the Senior Class staged the first 
class play, "The Devil and Daniel Webster," which was an impressive and entertaining exhibi- 
tion. After Christmas two auctions were sponsored by the seniors to raise money for the 1965 
yearbook. The varsity squad, composed mostly of seniors, had a 4-3 record at the end of the foot- 
ball season. The seniors, virtually unchallenged, swept the class games in softball and basketball. 
They achieved one of the highest academic standings in years, with over half of the Senior Class 
achieving an 80 average or better. The class officers in the senior year were Donald Maragioglio, 
president for his second year; Fred Schoomaker, vice president; Joe Gorman, secretary-treasurer; 
and Kenny Parker, Arthur Goss, and Jack Fiedler, representatives in the Student Council.

Larry came to Thompson Academy in the fall of 1963 from West Barn- 
stable, Mass., as a Freshman. During his year at Thompson he was a consistent 
honor roll student. He spent the majority of his spare time working in the 
Hobby Shop or in the Sloyd Room on various models and his science fair 
project. His work was rewarded by an honorable mention in the school Science 
Fair. Later in the year he won a third prize in the Public Speaking Contest. 
The most significant action of Larry's stay at Thompson was his originating the 
idea of establishing a fund by which the Protestant Youth could support and 
educate an Indian boy. This fund is named the Lawrence Pinson Fund in 
memory of him.

The Varsity Football Tearti was very successful this year with 
a 4-3 record. The Thompson team of twenty-eight players, 
though not very experienced, possessed a great deal of desire. 
Good running and team spirit captured our first three wins 
of the season, and after a two game losing streak bounced 
back to win again. In Thompson's last and toughest game of 
the season, undefeated Thayer Academy proved too strong an 
opponent against our spirited team.

The Coefficient football team ended its season with three wins and three ties. Thirty 
boys took part in the program. The team as a whole was much smaller physically than 
in other years but made up for its size with spirit and determination. For most of the 
squad this was their first taste of organized football. Many of the boys will play with 
the varsity next year. 

Coaches, Ray Thomas, end Herb Carey, were very pleased with the results of the 
season and the spirit and desire of all the members of the squad. The coefficient team, 
coached by Ray Thomas, has lost one game out of eighteen during the past years. Con- 
gratulations!

The 1964 baseball season turned out a great deal better than had been anticipated. 
The initial problem of devising a new infield was soon solved, and the field was gradu- 
ally rounded out. Hustle, aggressiveness, and good pitching characterized the Seahawk's 
winning season. 



The Varsity's record last year was : 

Thompson 6 — Thayer 7 

Thompson 6 — Rivers 2 

Thompson 2 — St. Sebastian 3

Last year's Baseball Team, captained by Chuck Rogers, was a team which improved 
with every game that it played. Also, many boys learned valuable lessons of sportsman- 
ship. "This was a year," remarked coach Wood, "in which playing experience was em- 
phasized more than the factor of winning." All of the members of the squad received 
helpful Playing experience which should lead to many successful teams on our baseball 
diamond.

The third annual PubHc Speaking Contest was held in 
May of 1964 and was one of the most successful events 
of the year. The participants ranged from grades eight 
through twelve and composed two divisions. For two 
hours the chapel was filled with speeches of some ot to- 
morrow's future orators. The number of speakers set a 
new record of participants in tht contest, building a 
strong foundation for the following year's contests, whicu 
we hope to see even more students participate.

council just barely began 
to build a road of school 
character, a road which 
is the best start towards 
a strong and efficient 
school organization 
which can influence a 
school and build strong 
student character.

Hobby and Sloyd Shops 




The Hobby Shop, begun last year, offers the students a wide variety of enjoyment. 
The boys are given the necessary time for guidance and provided with space in which 
to work. The students build models, work on Science Fair projects, and operate 
a ham radio station when the shop is open. Working with the radio and practicing the 
codes give many boys the opportunity to get licensed as ham radio operators. 

Adjoining the Hobby Shop is the Sloyd Room. This room, in existence since 
1917, has the facilities for turning out many fine pieces of art. Formerly Sloyd 
was a regular class, but now the shop is open only in the afternoons. During these 
afternoons the students are free to make what they wish. The finished pieces range from 
model boats to living room furniture. Instruction of these two activities is directed 
by Mr. Carter and Mr. Cormier.

Director 
MR. WILLIAM REEVES 

The band this year undertook the task of re-building itself. After two years of 

unorganized playing, the band, with the help of Director Reeves and the Quincy 

Legion Post Band, went on a few parades and played at graduation. Losing only 

six members this year the band should be able to build up its membership within 

a year. The band hopes that in time, and with practice, they can regain the privilege 

of playing at Fanueil Hall in May.

In Memoriam 




The Class of '65 dedicates this page of the Islander to the memory of Bror Y. 
Kihlstrom. 

For over 46 years Mr. Kihlstrom gave most generously of his many talents to the 
boys of Thompson Academy. He will be remembered by all as being a man of vast 
patience, with a ready willingness to help all boys turned to him, a man of keen wit, 
a genius at understanding, and a man possessed of great, quiet dignity. 

His creative talent in Sloyd, his musicianship, and his broad character have served 
us all well down through the years. We are better people for having been privileged 
to know this most wonderful man.
